Welp for the launch i'm waiting for things to be delivered. I did the Xbox and 360 at launch and those nights of waiting outside a store for over 20 hours... ya they are behind me.

Hopefully I get my PS4 by the Monday or Tuesday the 19th.

Based on Futureshop's info I should get Knack and Killzone by the end of this week... Battlefield 4 around the time I get the console.

With Watchdogs getting pushed back I might pick up AC4:Black Flag... not sure yet.

Might also get the camera... haven't decided.

my roommate is getting it at launch with CoD and Fifa (when ever that comes out, those are his preorders). Also selling back his PS3 + games so he'll probably come home with another game. I'll be waiting a year, always wait on a new console so I can pick and choose games, but hopefully he'll be a good roommate and not hog it in his room 24/7. Regardless I have a solid ps3 back log to finish before I can justify a new console.

There's not many games that peak my interest on launch, so I'll likely wait until the summer for NHL 15. I'm looking forward to reading reviews though and who knows, maybe I cave and buy it earlier and get some shooter games.

The only reason I could see getting a brand spanking new console of any kind now is if I can take advantage of the short supply and high demand through an auction site. Didn't someone once pay over $40,000 on eBay for the Original PS3 when there was a shortage of that system when it 1st came out?

Doubt it was that high, but I personally paid $1000 for mine thanks to the ****ing *******s at Walmart selling all but 2 to employees prior to the store opening (I was 3rd in line, and thanks to being in a smaller city at the time, waiting in line at Walmart was my only option)

Still trying to win a PS 4 through the Taco Bell promotion with my online code. 0 for 6 so far so I have no idea how winners are chosen. Winning a PS 4 would be great and all I would have to do is pick up some games on launch day.

A couple messageboards have some chats on it. Some saying it's happening; others say no way.

If they do it's easier than going to Target to get there and see no games. My area Targets get hammered on those sales.

Preorders have sold out in NZ so will have to wait until January to get one. Is the playstation network going to be cross-console? So I can see
Ps4 users online on my ps3?

Would I have to kill off my original pre-orders and make new ones to do the deal?

Yes I believe so. Same account so I don't see why not.

Anybody run into one in person yet? I saw one at a nearby EB on the way to class today and something was making a hell of a lot of noise. Couldn't tell if it was the TV, the PS4, or just something loose in the wall behind the setup though.

It's supposed to be quieter than the PS3

I believe so but of course only up to the 100th person because the limit on PS 3 is much smaller than that of the PS 4.

It better. The launch PS3 was a jumbo jet. I still have a launch PS3, and those fans blast so loud that you can almost hear them with the surround sound blaring.

The main thing that pisses me the **** off is not being able to play PS3 games. I'll get over it and all, but that's really a bunch of crap.

Still cannot wait to get my system. Will be playing the hell out of Killzone, Resogun, and NBA 2K14. Also need to upgrade my PS3 Madden 25 for whatever the $10 deals are out there.

I may be wrong but I could have sworn that Madden was not part of that deal.

Not necessarily. I've got a PS3 from launch and so does a friend of mine. Mine is like yours, but his is quieter than the new ones. It was a crapshoot which people would get
